2011-12 men’s Cross Country / Track & Field

Boston College proudly dedicates this media guide in memory of a man who furthered the Eagles track & field program and used his postcollegiate success to enrich the lives of all those he encountered. Boston College Trustee and Varsity Club Hall of Famer Keith Francis ‘76 passed away on July 26 in his New Bedford home following a long illness. The Eagles track legend was 56. “Keith didn’t have any qualifications for you to be a friend of his,” Career Center Associate Director Janet Costa Bates said, who became acquainted with Mr. Francis while growing up in New Bedford. “He had a talent for bringing people together, for connecting people to opportunities or to each other. That is his greatest legacy.” As an athlete, Francis was an extremely talented middle distance runner. During the 1975 outdoor season, the seven-time All-American was ranked as the No. 2 half-miler in the nation. Francis went on to claim the 1,000-meter NCAA Championship in 2:08.4 that indoor season. Of the nine records he set at Boston College, five remain as the standards for the track and field program: the outdoor 800 meters (1:46.18), mile (4:00.8), 4x800meter relay and sprint medley relay and the indoor 800 meters (1:50.2) and 1,000 meters (2:22.4). During the height of the Cold War, Francis represented the United States in international meets against the Soviet Union and China and competed in the 1976 U.S. Olympic Trials. Just five years after graduating from BC, he was inducted into the BC Varsity Club Hall of Fame. Larry Rawson ‘63, the “Voice of ESPN” for more than 30 years of track and field coverage, described Francis’ running career as the greatest Boston College has ever seen. Francis continued to excel after graduating in 1976. During a 30 year career in Washington, D.C., he worked his way up from a superior court probation officer to become a senior intelligence analyst for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. In 2008, Francis chaired efforts for Reconnect, the first-ever AHANA reunion at BC, which drew over 600 attendees. He recently completed the 2010-11 term as a member of the Boston College Board of Trustees. ”If I sent a student to Keith, he would always lend a helping hand,” Bates observed. “When he spoke to students on campus, he’d say, `If you want a job in government, I should be your first contact.’ He was always willing to make a phone call, walk a resume over, just do whatever he could to open the door for a young person.”

running in Boston

Various cities across the country may attempt to claim status as America’s running capital, but no city can rival the diversity and excitement of running in Boston. Through the Boston Commons, Franklin Park and the miles of pathways along the Charles River, runners in Boston can find anything to suit their needs. On any given day, Boston running can be reflected in the masses of athletes training on Commonwealth Avenue, to the seclusion and serenity that come from running through the beautiful parks and pathways throughout the city. As the academic year begins at Boston College, so do the preparations of thousands of running enthusiasts as they prepare for the Boston Marathon. By the spring, Boston College – perched atop “Heartbreak Hill” – buzzes with anticipation for the world’s finest marathon. Boston College is within easy access of the city and some of the best indoor track and field complexes in the country. Alternatively, within minutes of the opposite direction, BC athletes can be running on endless, soft trails such as those found at Walden Pond. It is this unique access to both the city and the countryside that really sets Boston College apart from any other school. We invite you to come and join in this experience, to live, to study and to run! Sincerely, Matthew Kerr Director of Men’s Cross Country/Track & Field

2011-12 men’s Cross Country / Track & Field In addition to six years of coaching experience, Kerr boasts a 13 year highly-decorated career as an international runner. An accomplished athlete, Kerr concluded his career with his third consecutive, and fourth overall, 3000m Steeplechase title at the Canadian Track and Field Championships in 2007.

M att K err

Director Men’s Cross Country/ Track and Field Fourth Season

Between 1994 and 2005, the four-time national champion represented Team Canada on seven occasions at the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Championships. Kerr attended the IAAF World Cross Country Championships five times (1994, 1995, 2000, 2001, 2005) and the IAAF World Track and Field Championships twice (2003 and 2005). In 2000, Kerr graduated Cum Laude from the University of Arkansas as a double-major in International Economics and Marketing Management. He was a member of the Dean’s List and an Academic All-American throughout his undergraduate career.

Matt Kerr begins his fourth year as the Director of Men’s Cross Country and Track and Field at Boston College. Kerr was named to his current role in 2008 after serving as the assistant coach for the men’s and women’s programs at Wake Forest University for four years.

At the University of Arkansas from 1995 to 1999, Kerr garnered six AllAmerican and four All-SEC honors as a member of 10 NCAA Championship and 12 Southeastern Conference Championship teams. As a Razorback, he claimed back-to-back NCAA individual titles in 3000m Steeplechase in 1998 and 1999 and four SEC Individual Championships, including three straight 3000m Steeplechase titles.

In the first three years under Kerr’s guidance, Boston College has garnered 79 All-ACC Academic Honor Roll distinctions, seven All-ACC Academic Team members, been recognized as the ACC Performer of the Week on three occasions and made one appearance on the ACC All-Conference team.

After graduating from Arkansas, he earned a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Wollongong, receiving the postgraduate degree with distinction honors.

BC took great strides throughout the 2010-11 campaign, exhibiting its competitive nature with a continuous series of PRs and school record marks. In cross country, Louis Serafini submitted one of the fastest times run at Franklin Park in Eagles history. At the historic Penn Relays, the Eagles broke a 22-year old school record in the 4xMile. Kerr also guided Jordan Hamm (steeplechase), Jack Hennessy (400m), Ian Thomas (1,000m) and the 4x400meter relay into the track record book. At the New England Championship, Anthony Bellitti knocked 16 seconds off his PR in the 3,000-meter steeplechase to qualify for USA Junior Nationals, before BC capped the year with a thrilling victory in the 4x800-meter relay to capture the school’s first regional title in three years.

While at Wollongong, Kerr was a five-time Australian University Games Champion.

In his first season at the helm of the BC program, Kerr’s impact was felt immediately. During the 2008 outdoor track season, he led Dave Emerson to a New England Championship in the 10,000m and coached Jeff Smith to a school record in the 100m dash.

Kerr’s Timeline:

2008-Present – Director of Boston College Men’s Cross Country/Track and Field Programs 2004-2007 – Asst. coach of Wake Forest Men’s and Women’s Cross Country/Track and Field Programs 1994-2007 – Canadian national team member 2001-2002 – University of Wollongong (athlete) 1996-2000 – University of Arkansas Razorbacks (athlete)

In the fall of 2008, with Kerr’s tutelage, standout Timothy Ritchie earned a pair of ACC Cross Country Performer of the Week honors and sophomore Theodore Doyle added one of his own. Kerr led Ritchie to a second place finish at ACCs - BC’s all-time best individual performance - with the Eagles taking sixth place for their highest team finish since joining the conference in 2005.

HIGHLIGHTS

Kerr also coached Ritchie to a New England Cross Country Championship that year. The BC star took seventh place at the NCAA Northeast Regional and went on to make his first appearance at the NCAA Cross Country Championship, finishing No. 62.

4-Time Canadian Steeplechase Champion (2003, 2005, 2006, 2007) 2-Time NCAA Champion - 3000m Steeplechase (1999, 2000 - University of Arkansas)

During the 2009 indoor track season, Kerr brought continued recognition to Boston College. At the 2009 ACC Indoor Championship, Ritchie placed sixth in the 5000m. The senior took third in the same event at the conference championship, the highest-ever individual placing by an Eagle at the meet. Earlier in the season, BC’s captain busted out two NCAA Regional qualifying times in the 5000m, one of which was a 14:02.59 performance at the ICAAAA meet.

Represented Canada at 5 IAAF World XC Championships (1994, 1995, 2000, 2001, 2005) Represented Canada at 2 IAAF World Track & Field Championships (2003, 2005)

After making the transition outside, Kerr guided Ritchie to qualify for the NCAA preliminary round in the 5000m by posting a time of 14:03.21. With Kerr at the helm, the Eagles earned their first podium finish in several decades at the New England Track and Field Championships, having grabbed third place behind Matt Adetula’s championship in the triple jump.

8th at the 2006 Commonwealth Games - 3000m Steeplechase (Canada) Member of 10 NCAA Championship Winning Teams (University of Arkansas 1995-99)

Following a rebuilding year on the cross country course, the 2010 track seasons were also quite successful for Boston College. Mark Domaracki highlighted the indoor campaign by breaking the school record in the 500m with a time of 1:03.54 at the BU Valentine Invitational and Ritchie, then a grad student, recorded the sixth fastest mile time in school history at 4:05.47.

2011-12 men’s Cross Country / Track & Field During the 2007 indoor season, Buckley coached Kasey Hill to become the first woman field athlete from BC to earn All-American honors, doing so in the pentathlon with a school record 4,073 points and Tiana Riel to provisional qualifiers for the indoor pentathlon and outdoor heptathlon events.

J ohn B uckley Assistant Coach 14th Season

The Eagles duo returned to earn All-American accolades in 2008. This time Riel was recognized in the pentathlon and Hill set a school-record of 5,666 points to place seventh in the heptathlon. With Buckley’s mentoring, Riel and Hill each progressed the Boston College Pentathlon record and collectively four BC athletes have bettered the Eagles’ Heptathlon record: Christian Regan, Elizabeth Hassan, Riel and Hill. During his tenure, other BC records have gone by the wayside in the discus (Megan Kearney), hammer throw (Elizabeth MacDonald), shot put (Jessica Fazekas), javelin (Brighid Marquess), and high jump (Christina Regan).

John Buckley enters his 14th season as the throws and multi-events coach at Boston College. Since joining the program during the 1997-98 season, Buckley has coached a multitude of BC student-athletes to All-American, ACC and Big East Conference honors, as well as recognition as ECAC and New England area champions.

Buckley also coached BC’s last men’s conference track champion, Rubuin Marin, who won the BIG EAST Championship High Jump competition during the 1999 indoor and outdoor season.

The 2010-11 season saw Buckley mentor Mathew Kosmas to a pair of top 10 marks in the discus and 35-lb. weight throw. Kosmas broke the Beanpot weight toss record with an 18.03m mark, before going to claim fifth at the IC4A Championship with the 10th longest throw in school history (18.18m). In the spring, Buckley helped Kosmas to place fourth in the New England Championship with a discus heave of 48.47m, sixth furthest in program history.

A 1971 graduate of Kent State, Buckley received his master’s degree in education in 1978 from the University of Massachusetts. While at his alma mater, he competed in the pole vault, throws, and Decathlon. Buckley has earned four Level 11 certificates from the United States Track & Field Association with concentrations in the throws, jumps, sprints-hurdlesrelays, and the multi-events. He is a Level 11 certified instructor for the multievents and a Level 1 certified instructor.

The standout was twice a regional qualifier in the [event] in his outdoor career. In 2009, Ritchie received one ACC Performer of the Week award and earned All-ACC honors in the 5000m. In 2010, he was the runnerup in the 1,500m at the New England Championship.

T im R itchie Assistant Coach Second Season

Ritchie is currently continuing his running career as part of the Boston Athletic Association. In addition to his athletic career as an Eagle, Ritchie was an active member of the Boston College community during his undergraduate career. Through Campus Ministry he participated in numerous activities, including Appalachia Volunteer, Urban Immersion Volunteer and CURA prayer group leader. He was a member of the Sons of St. Patrick, a student-founded, student-run organization that addresses the needs of Catholic men on campus through prayer, service and dialogue. Ritchie was also a tutor and instructional assistant in the Learning Resource Center for Student-Athletes from 2009-10 and a lifeguard for three years.

Tim Ritchie enters his second season as an assistant with the Boston College men’s cross country and track and field programs. Ritchie’s responsibilities include work out execution, recruiting and serving as mentor for student-athletes. “I am very excited to be back at BC to be involved with the Track and Field and Cross Country programs in a new dimension,” Ritchie stated. “It is a thrill to be back with a team that I have grown to care so much for in my five years here. I hope my experience as a runner on the team, as well as an active member of the BC community through academics and extracurricular activities will be an asset for the current team and the athletes to come.”

Ritchie has earned three degrees from Boston College. As a double major, he graduated with a B.S. of Biology and a B.A. of Theology from the College of Arts and Sciences in 2009. Continuing his education, Ritchie completed his Master’s of Arts in Theology with a 3.7 GPA in 2010.

As a student-athlete at Boston College, Ritchie enjoyed one of the most storied careers in recent times. Ritchie captained the cross country teams from 2007-08. After taking seventh place in the Northeast Regional in 2008, he competed in the NCAA National Championship and finished 62nd at the meet. Earlier that season, he became just the fourth Eagle to win the New England championship, one year removed from finishing as the runner-up. In his final season, Ritchie earned the highest-ever placing at the ACC Championship (2nd) and was named the ACC Performer of the Week on two occasions.

EVENT: Dartmouth Invitational Iona - Br. Doyle Meet of Champions New England Championships The Mayor’s Cup ACC Championships NCAA Regional Championships IC4A Championships

SITE: Hanover, N.H. Bronx, N.Y. Boston, Mass. Boston, Mass. Clemson, S.C. Buffalo, N.Y. Bronx, N.Y.

PLACE/RESULT 2 of 4 (64 pts.) 8 of 19 (206 pts.) 16 of 43 (418 pts.) No Team Score 11 of 12 (281 pts.) 14 of 33 (418 pts.) 13 of 17 (273 pts.)

Boston College graduated five members from the 2010 squad: captain Michael Keebler, Cory Ahern, Ted Doyle, Brian Hughes and Ian Thomas. However, seven freshmen joined the ranks with a core group of veterans. Bolstering the squad were Pat Daly, Jose Estevez, Colin Fedor, Tim Ferris, Richard Lucas, Greg Malloy and James Newhouse. The Eagles opened the season at the Dartmouth Invitational on Sept. 10. Junior Louis Serafini picked up right where he left, leading the unit with a 10th place finish.

As the Eagles turned their attention to the New England Championship, they received their first USTFCCCA Regional Ranking in two seasons, No. 14. Hamm and Serafini turned in a pair of top 20 finishes for BC, leading BC as they would all season, taking 15th and 20th respectively. The regional contest also saw Lucas score his first varsity point as the Eagles No. 5 finisher. Hamm’s then-personal record time of 25:13 earned him ACC Performer of the Week honors, the first for BC since Doyle’s 2008 accolade. Two weeks later, Boston College nearly swept the Mayor’s Cup at Franklin Park. On a five-kilometer course, Hamm finished in second place at 15:37, with Serafini in third at 15:45. The next five Eagles all came across in the top 10, as Bellittie took fourth, Lucas was sixth, Glover claimed eighth, senior Akash Chougule in ninth and junior Nahed Lakkis in 10th. BC used the momentum to record six personal records at the ACC Championship in Clemson that Saturday. Hamm and Serafini both wrapped up their runs in the top 50, before Glover scored third by lowering his PR more than a minute. Bellitti and Chougule delivered monstrous personal bests as well, helping the Eagles finish in 11th with 281 points. A two-week layoff before the NCAA Northeast Regional enabled Hamm to charge his legs for an all-out push to qualify for nationals. Hamm blazed his way through the only 10-kilometer course BC faces each year in 32:18.2, finishing 29th overall with a big PR and narrowly missing All-Region decorations. As they had in prior meets, Serafini, Glover, Lucas and Bellitti strung together a strong supporting cast and helped BC take 14th place and hold onto its final regional ranking. Not to be outdone, Serafini spent himself at the IC4A Championship the following weekend. The captain earned his first All-East accolade with a 22nd place finish in 25:40 on the Van Cortlandt Park course. The Eagles finished in 13th, concluding another season on a strong note as they tallied 71 fewer points and improved one place over the 2010 standings.

At the 1997 IC4A Championship, McGehearty established a BC record of 22.20m (72-10.0 ft.) in the weight throw. As of the 2011-12 season, the record still stands.

1992 – Cross Country 1992 – 3000m Keith Yuen earned a host of track and cross country championships and honors in his time at BC. This record-setting runner clocked a 3:40.78 in the Outdoor 1,500m run to establish a school record. The fleet-footed Yuen also qualified for NCAA Championship Meets in the Indoor 3,000-meter event – winning All-American honors – and the 1992 National Cross Country Championship. As a senior, he was the New England Indoor 3,000m champion. A valuable team contributor, he was also a member of BC’s 1992 IC4A Indoor Distance Medley Champions; BIG EAST Indoor Distance Medley Champions; and New England Indoor 3,200m Relay Champions. Thanks in part to Yuen’s efforts the Eagles brought home the 1992 New England Indoor Track and Field Championship. Christopher Georgules

1994 – 3000m 1995 – Cross Country and 3000m At the 1994 BIG EAST Cross Country Championship, Christopher Georgules turned a time of 24:34. The run was only the third sub-25:00.0 mark in the history of Boston College on its home course and would go unmatched for six years. That indoor season, Georgules would run the first-and-only sub-8 minute 3,000m time in BC history (7:59.27) en route to earning his first All-American honor in the 3,000m competition. In 1995, became the first Eagle cross country athlete to qualify for the NCAA Championship in three years and went on to collect his only All-American recognition in the sport. Georgules continued his excellence on track, running the third fastest 5,000m in school history (14:18.99), before concluding his BC career as an All-American in the 3,000m.

1987 – Cross Country 1987 – 10,000m From 1984-87, Jose Rocha captured numerous titles for the Eagles on the cross country course and around the track. As a freshman, he won the Greater Boston Cross Country Championship, eventually repeating as senior in 1987. In his junior year, he came in first at the National Catholic Championship. Rocha went on to cap his collegiate cross country career as the 1987 BIG EAST Champion – BC’s second ever - and an All-American. On the track, Rocha claimed crowns in the 1985 10,000m competition at the New England Championship and the IC4A 5,000m in 1987. As a senior, he set a school record of 28:42.8 in the 10,000m at the prestigious Penn Relays Carnival. Rocha ended time in the Maroon and Gold with an All-American performance in the 10,000m at the 1987 NCAA Championship. Following his career at BC, he won back-to-back National TAC Cross Country Championships in 1987 and 1988.

president leahy

2011-12 men’s Cross Country / Track & Field

William P. Leahy, S.J. became the 25th president of Boston College on July 31, 1996. Born in Omaha, he grew up on his family's farm near Imogene, Iowa. After one year of college at Creighton University, he entered the Wisconsin Province of the Society of Jesus in 1967. He received a bachelor's degree in philosophy and a master's degree in United States history from Saint Louis University in 1972 and 1975, respectively. Between 1975 and 1979, he studied theology at the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley, California, earning a master's degree in divinity and a master's degree in sacred theology while there. Ordained a priest in 1978, he completed doctoral studies in United States history at Stanford University in 1985. Father Leahy joined the department of history at Marquette University in 1985 and became a tenured associate professor there six years later. In July 1991, he was named executive vice president at Marquette, where he served until being named president of Boston College in 1996. During his years at Boston College, Father Leahy has presided over an institution that has solidified its position among the nation's best and most selective national universities. Since 1996, BC's endowment, sponsored research grants and student financial aid have doubled, and the percentage of student applicants accepted has fallen from 41 percent to 27 percent, while SAT scores have risen by more than 150 points. In addition, 100 full-time faculty members have been added, minority student enrollment in undergraduate programs has climbed from 18 percent to 27 percent and annual cash gifts to the University have increased from $24 million to $100 million. During his presidency, undergraduate applications to Boston College have grown from 16,500 to more than 33,000, making BC one of the 10 most- applied to private universities in the United States. Currently, the University enrolls students from all 50 states and 80 countries, and its undergraduates have earned more than 285 prestigious fellowships, including two Rhodes Scholarships. Student-athletes at BC succeed in balancing the demands of academics and athletics, and BC consistently ranks among those universities with the highest NCAA graduation rates. Most recently, the Boston College community has been engaged in a comprehensive assessment and planning effort that resulted in a 10-year Strategic Plan. This plan will build on Boston College's strengths and accomplishments of the past and will focus additional resources on undergraduate liberal arts education and formation, as well as integrated science research and teaching. The University also intends to increasingly apply the strengths of its professional schools to resolving critical societal issues, and foster even more international links. In addition, Boston College intends to remain faithful to its Jesuit, Catholic heritage and to become the leading Catholic university and theological center in the world.

2011-12 men’s Cross Country / Track & Field and video boards, new soccer, field hockey and lacrosse stadiums on the Newton campus, new Field Turf for Alumni Stadium, and an air-inflated bubble to cover the stadium turf to provide an indoor practice facility for all sports during the winter months. DeFilippo was instrumental in raising money to build the privately funded $27 million, 72,000-square-foot Yawkey Athletics Center, which houses the football program, the Office of Learning Resources for Student-Athletes, and a large function area for general University use. After football moved into the Yawkey Center, BC undertook a multi-million dollar renovation Conte Forum to provide additional locker room and office space for many of BC’s 31 varsity sports.

Gene DeFilippo

director of Athletics

Under DeFilippo’s leadership, Boston College student-athletes’ achievements in the classroom have become an immense source of pride for the University and its supporters. Twenty-one Boston College sports teams received a perfect Graduation Success Rate score of 100, according to data released by the NCAA last November. That figure represents the most teams with a perfect 100 score of any Division I intercollegiate athletics program in the country for the second consecutive year. In addition, BC football – with a score of 90 – was one of only six FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) programs in the country to receive a score of 90 or better. In May, Boston College’s varsity sports teams scored big when the NCAA released its annual Academic Progress Rate report. The average APR score of the 28 BC teams that were counted was 989 - 19 points above the national average (970). Every BC team scored 960 or above, and six teams - men’s fencing, men’s golf, men’s skiing, women’s lacrosse, women’s skiing and women’s tennis - scored a perfect 1,000. Boston College’s football team scored a 971 - a full 25 points above the national average. The men’s basketball team scored a 972 - 27 points above the national average. “Boston College is, above all, an academic institution,” DeFilippo said. “We want to field competitive sports teams, and we want to win, which our teams do. But when we recruit student-athletes, we tell them they have an opportunity to receive a degree from one of the greatest universities in the country, and our mission is to ensure that they are successful. We are extremely proud of our student-athletes’ accomplishments in the classroom.”

Anne and Gene DeFilippo cemented their commitment to Boston College by announcing their pledge of $100,000 to endow a scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a female student-athlete who demonstrates outstanding academic achievement and financial need. In athletics competition, DeFilippo has overseen some of the most successful seasons in Boston College Athletics history. During the 2010-11 season, the football team appeared in a school-record 12th consecutive bowl game, the women’s soccer team advanced to its first Final Four and the women’s ice hockey team advanced to the Frozen Four. In 2010, the men’s ice hockey team captured its fourth national championship (its third since 2001). In 2008, the men’s soccer team captured both the ACC regular-season and tournament championships and entered the NCAA Men’s Soccer Tournament as the overall No. 1 seed. From 1993-97, DeFilippo served as director of athletics at Villanova University. He served as Associate Director of Athletics at the University of Kentucky from 1987-93, Director of Athletics at the University of South Carolina-Spartanburg from 1984-87 and Director of Administrative Services at Vanderbilt University from 1983-84. His coaching experience includes three years as offensive backfield coach at Vanderbilt (1980-82), which included the 1982 Hall of Fame Bowl. From 1975-79, he was offensive coordinator at Youngstown State University, during which time the team won two consecutive Mid-Continent Conference championships, 1978-79. In 1973-74, he was graduate assistant football coach for the University of Tennessee, coaching in the 1973 Gator Bowl and 1974 Liberty Bowl. A 1973 graduate of Springfield College with a Bachelor of Science degree, DeFilippo earned three varsity letters as a quarterback in football during his undergraduate career. He received a master’s degree in educational administration from the University of Tennessee in 1974.

Last year, 349 BC student-athletes maintained a grade point average of 3.0 or better, earning the Athletic Director’s Award for Academic Excellence. BC’s graduation rate for all student-athletes has consistently ranked in the nation’s top ten. NCSA Athletic Recruiting ranked Boston College 13th among NCAA Division I universities in its annual power rankings, which assess the combined academic and athletics standards of all NCAA athletic programs across the country.

He was recently named the 2010 recipient of the New England Prep School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) Martin Williams Souders Award, presented annually to a graduate of a New England independent school who made a distinguished record in sports and who since made a distinguished record in life through his/her ideals, leaderships and accomplishments. Past recipients have included George H.W. Bush, Sargent Shriver, Michael Erizione, Dee Rowe, Bill Cleary, and former BC Athletics Director Bill Flynn.

DeFilippo has undertaken an impressive overhaul of BC’s athletics facilities that includes new football practice facilities, a total renovation of Conte Forum, including a new sound system, floor

DeFilippo and his wife, Anne, are the parents of three children – Christine Eldred (married to Matt Eldred), John and Mary and recently welcomed their first grandchild, Katherine Eldred.

Since Gene DeFilippo became Director of Athletics in September of 1997, he has led the BC athletics program to an unprecedented period of innovation, growth, fundraising, athletic and academic success. He also led the program through one of the most significant periods in its history as it transitioned to full membership in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

DeFilippo renamed the Athletics Association’s fundraising arm (formerly Blue Chips) in honor of longtime Athletics Director Bill Flynn. Alumni, parents and friends of Boston College contributed nearly $20 million during the past year including more than 40 commitments of $100,000 or more in support of intercollegiate athletics. During the Light the World Campaign, DeFilippo has led an athletics fundraising effort that has totaled more than $150 million.

College

Boston College was founded by the Society of Jesus in 1863 and, with 3 teachers and 22 students, opened its doors on September 5, 1864. Through its first seven decades, it remained a small undergraduate institution, serving the sons of the Irish working class, and teaching theology and philosophy, Greek and Latin classics, and English and modern languages.

1947 and 1952. The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences first offered doctoral programs in 1952, followed by the graduate schools of Education, Nursing, Management, and Social Work. By 1970 all undergraduate programs had become coeducational, and today women make up more than half of the University’s enrollment. In 1974, Boston College acquired a 40-acre site, 1.5 miles from the Chestnut Hill Campus, that had been owned by Newton College of the Sacred Heart. The land is the present site of the Law School and of residence halls housing some 800 freshmen. Thirty years later, the University acquired 43 acres from the Boston Archdiocese on land adjoining the Lower Campus in Chestnut Hill. The Brighton Campus is now the site of the School of Theology and Ministry, which was formed in 2008, when the Weston Jesuit School of Theology re-affiliated with Boston College and was joined with the Institute of Religious Education and Pastoral Ministry.

Originally located on Harrison Avenue in Boston’s South End, the College outgrew its urban setting early in the 20th century and moved to the former Lawrence farm in then-rural Chestnut Hill, where ground was broken on June 19, 1909 for the construction of a central Recitation Building, later named Gasson Hall in honor of President Thomas I. Gasson, S.J., who led the relocation. The Recitation Building opened in March 1913. The three other buildings that still shape the core of the campus—St. Mary’s Hall, Devlin Hall, and Bapst Library— opened in 1917, 1924, and 1928, respectively. Though incorporated as a university from its beginning, Boston College did not begin to fill out the dimensions of its University charter until the 1920s, with the inauguration of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the Law School, and the Evening College, today the James A. Woods, S.J., College of Advancing Studies. The 1930s saw the introduction of the Graduate School of Social Work and the College of Business Administration—today the Wallace E. Carroll School of Management. The School of Nursing—named in honor of William F. Connell in 2003—and the School of Education— today named for Carolyn A. and Peter S. Lynch—followed in

In 2005, the Church in the 21st Century Initiative, which was founded in the midst of the sex abuse scandal as a catalyst and resource for engaging critical issues facing the Catholic Church, became a permanent center at Boston College. In October 2008, the University launched “Light the World: the 150th Anniversary Campaign for Boston College,” setting a goal of $1.5 billion to support a strategic plan that advances academic program development, faculty expansion and research, and endows undergraduate financial aid, student formation programs, capital projects, and efforts to advance Boston College as the leading global Catholic university.

Franklin Park Cross Country Course When the city of Boston was awarded the honor of hosting the1992 International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Cross Country Championship, it was in need of a world-class facility. At that time, Franklin Park was selected to have a cross country specific course designed on its premises. Although a special 12.5 kilometer course was implemented for the competition, the park features courses ranging from 5-, 6-, 8-and-10-kilometer distances. Each layout typically includes variations of three major components, the stadium loop – a journey around the back of White Stadium - Bear Cage Hill - elevating and descending athletes to 99m (194ft.) - and the Wilderness, which crosses into the wooded area of the park and follows a twisting path through the trees. The course sits on a partially-wooded 527-acre park in the Jamaica Plain and Roxbury neighborhoods of Boston. Although the park boasts other athletic facilities such as a golf course, tennis courts, baseball fields and basketball courts, it is the course designed primarily for international running competition that is utilized most often. In addition to serving as the hosting all Boston College home meets, the Boston Athletic Association, the NCAA and numerous organizations throughout New England all make use of the competitively beautiful course that is Franklin Park. The park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, an American journalist and father of landscape architecture, in the 19th century and named for Boston-born patriot Benjamin Franklin. It is the largest and final component of Boston’s famed Emerald Necklace – the 1,100-acres of parks linked by parkways and waterways in the city – developed by Olmstead. Two years prior to the parks formation, American transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson lived on the grounds on what is now known as “Schoolmaster Hill”.

Service Trip Officer 2011-12 SAAC

he story of Boston College began in 1534, when seven idealistic students at the University of Paris T met in a chapel in Montmartre and vowed their lives to the service of God and the well-being of their fellow men and women. They were the founders of the Society of Jesus – the Jesuits – an order of religious men who did not choose monastic life, but instead went out to encounter and transform the world, committed to “finding God in all things.” Missionaries, explorers, scientist, artists, diplomats, writers – the Jesuits worked wherever intelligence, talent and the needs of the Roman Catholic Church took them. And when they turned to education, they developed an approach that sought to integrate intellectual excellence and religious commitment, that was concerned with the character as well as mind, that valued knowledge, transcendent values, community and service to others. In the spirit of the Jesuit mission, Boston College student-athletes have a rare opportunity to translate the skills they hone in their choice of sport into a positive lasting impact in the community. Through the generosity of Michael and Matt Devlin and their establishment of the Katharine B. and Robert M. Devlin Student-Athletes for Education (S-AFE) and Leadership Development Program, student-athletes impact an even greater audience by reaching farther into the surrounding communities and truly helping those in need so that others too can reach great heights. The program honors the Devlin family’s commitment to service and enables student-athletes to develop in all facets of their collegiate experience. omprised of more than 60 Boston College student-athletes, the Student-Athlete Advisory C Committee became a vibrant part of the athletic department in 2003. In addition to the Devlin S-AFE programs, the Committee aims to carry on the Jesuit tradition of service to other via other outlets. The SAAC annually sponsors a First-Year Orientation for incoming student-athletes in conjunction with the annual “Welcome Back Picnic” for all returning student-athletes, as well as speakers of campus-wide interest. In 2006, the SAAC raised more than $500 to be donated the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism, Inc. At the annual talent show in 2010, more than $3,000 was raised for the St. Bernard Project, which provides support to rebuilding areas devasted by Hurrican Katrina. The SAAC also offers student-athletes at Boston College the opportunity to review and offer input on Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) activities, policies and proposed legislation. The SAAC distributes two annual awards, the Richard “Mo” Maloney Award for Community Service, presented to the male and female student-athlete who has utilized their talents and abilities in service to others, and the Ignatian Service Award presented to the team whose spirit and action best exemplify the Jesuit principle of cura personalis (care for the individual). The chosen team has excelled in utilizing the combined talents, abilities and generous spirit of its members for the service of others.

DEVLIN S-AFE PROGRAMS Student-Athlete Service Immersion Trip Over 60 percent of students participate in an immersion trip during their time at Boston College. An athlete led and coordinated program, the Student-Athlete Service Immersion Trip is the hallmark of the S-AFE Program. Previous missions have brought the Eagle to Poplarville, Miss. and New Orleans. HEAR (Help Educate through Athletic Responsibility) In conjuction with former BC baseball coach Mo Maloney, a of 8-to-12 student-athletes participate in a bi-monthly program in which they go to local schools and speak with students about life choices and sports. Franciscan Hospital for Children At least once a month a group of students bring joy to the lives of children with visits to the Franciscan Hospital. The two sides often develop friendships and look forward to seeing each other every few weeks. Food for Families A monthly event in which a group of studentathletes organize and distribute monthly donations - more than 350 bags of groceries provided by the Greater Boston Food Bank to help hundreds of families in the area.

Clothing & Canned Food Drives Multiple clothing and canned food drives are conducted throughout the year to see who can amass the most donations in relation to the percentage of their team. Drives benefit the Brighton Projects. Boston Children’s Hospital A big event in which a large group of student-athletes visit the Children’s Hospital with cheerleaders and Baldwin to spend time with kids. Pen Pal Program SAAC assists the LRSA with the pen pal program, pairing student-athletes with children in the surrounding communities and hosting an annual picnic on campus for the two sides to meet one another in a fun-filled afternoon.
